March Meeting

Our speaker for the March meeting will be Dan Baumann of the Wisconsin DNR.  Dan is a secretary’s director for 19 counties in west central Wisconsin.  Dan will be giving us an update on the Little Plover River Project.  Program is on Thursday, March 14th at 7:00 PM at PJ’s Restaurant at SentryWorld in Stevens Point.  Everyone is welcome.

In 2017, the Little Plover River Watershed Enhancement Project (LPRWEP) team  was formed. Participating entities include the Village of Plover, conservation, engineering, and agricultural organizations, Portage County, WDNR, and UWSP. This partnership is working to explore, plan, and implement voluntary restoration and management actions aimed at addressing Little Plover River habitat, water, and watershed issues. This evening’s presentation will discuss LPRWEP’s vision and goals, its science-based planning efforts, community outreach, and implementation of projects to help restore the health of the river and watershed. Come on out and learn about how you can become involved in this long-term effort to help bring on-the-ground action aimed at helping restore and care for this important watershed


Due to the weather our meeting/speaker for Thursday February 7th has been cancelled.

Our next chapter meeting will be on Thursday, February 7th at 7:00 PM at PJ’s Restaurant at SentryWorld in Stevens Point.  Following our meeting, Tim Parks, Fisheries Biologist for Portage County, will give a presentation on the status of the Tomorrow River.  Bring a friend!  Everyone welcome!

“The Tomorrow River, located in eastern Portage County, contains populations of naturally reproducing brook and brown trout that represents a significant coldwater resource in Central Wisconsin.  The trout populations we see today are largely the result numerous factors such as current and historical habitat conditions, environmental degradation, the connectivity of habitats, and angler harvest dynamics.  Because of the value and importance of this coldwater resource, the DNR has closely monitored Tomorrow River over the last 30 years to better understand the status of these brook and brown trout populations.”




Three Work Days are on the Schedule for January:

  • Tuesday, January 15th;
  • Thursday, January 17th and
  • Saturday, January 19th.

Work will be done between NOON & 3:00 p.m. each day.  Hand tools (Loppers) will be available or you can bring your own.

Location:  Volunteers will meet on the South Side of the Little Plover River.  Take County R to Black Oak Drive and turn East.  Turn North where Twin Towers Drive meets Black Oak Drive and drive across the field access road toward the LPR Conservancy Area.

Work to be completed:  Cutting and assembling Tag Alder Bundles, and moving them near the river bank.  They’ll be installed later in the Spring.

RSVP:  Sign up by contacting Jerry Knuth at knuth0628@sbcglobal.netOr call (715) 340-5414 {cell #).  If plans for the afternoon Work Detail should change, we will contact everyone with a 24 hour prior notice.  You can elect to work one, two, or three afternoons if your schedule permits.  It’s not strenuous work.

Things are off to a good start and these three Work Parties will go far in helping to move the project forward.

    Have been a member for some time and just moved into Plover which means I could attend meetings. However, the calendar on the web page I have is for 2017 so I missed you by a day. Could you let me know when your meetings are? Would appreciate it.
